Title: Death and Birth
Post by: Hydromancerx on August 28, 2012, 11:22:37 pm
The way the game works is you post the Birth and Death of a famous person. On the year that the person was born you post another famous person that died that year.

Here I will start ...

Neil Armstrong (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neil_Armstrong)
(August 5, 1930 – August 25, 2012)

Now someone has to post someone who died in 1930.
